ROTARY SPECIAL MONTHS:    DECEMBER IS FAMILY

 

 

Monday December 1st 2014

 

Acting President Ian Pittaway welcomed all sixteen Rotarians and called on Gail McCulloch to introduce our guest speaker, June Wade. 

 

Patricia Robertson then spoke about the Job Seekers' Seminar to be held at the East Fremantle Football Club from 9.00am on Tuesday, December 9th.  She gave an overview of the day and checked through her list of volunteers.  We urgently need more interviewers for the day so if you can help call Patricia on 9317 1202.

 

Colin McCulloch spoke about a sausage sizzle we are doing in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Melville at their Carols by Candlelight at Kadidjiny next Sunday, December 7th.  They have done a 5000 letter drop advertising the night but with no mention of a sausage sizzle.  We hope that advertising through Melville Primary School will mention the sausage sizzle.  We will be set up ready to sell by 5.00pm, the program commences at 6.00pm and the carols at 6.30pm.  Colin, Gail and Greg James will manage the event but hopefully will need an extra helper in the busy time from 5.30 to 6.30.  Patricia volunteered immediately (what a great member she is!)

All members are invited to come to the Carols and maybe buy a sausage sizzle.

 

Colin also read out the Christmas Dinner menu which features elsewhere in this newsletter.  George Lewkowski has very generously offered to provide a bottle of red and white wine for each table.

 

Llew Withers invited the acting President to present a cheque for $800 at a special Scouts event.  The $800 was used to purchase two flies for their tent kitchens.  (A fly is an additional roof cover).  They have been put to good use already and the club recently won a cooking competition.

 

The sergeant, Jim Calcei, conducted a short, sharp fines session and finished with a game of heads 'n' tails that was won by Kerry Parsons. 

Keeping it in the family Abby won the door prize.

Peter Field reported that the Joker is now worth $558 and Patricia was excited to have her ticket drawn but, alas, she couldn't find the joker.

 


 

 

Guest Speaker

June Wade - Shelter Boxes

Gail McCulloch introduced June saying that she is a member of the Burswood South Perth Rotary Club and is also a Shelterbox WA representative on the Ambassador Council for all of Australia.

 

Shelterbox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide.

They respond instantly to natural and manmade

disasters by delivering boxes of aid to those who are most in need and try to have boxes arriving within 24 to 48 hours.  Each box supplies an extended family with a tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless.  Since they began in 2000, they have responded to earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, tsunamis, hurricanes, landslides, typhoons and conflict, delivering emergency humanitarian aid to communities in need.  Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distribute the boxes on the ground, working closely with local organizations, international aid agencies and Rotary clubs worldwide.  To learn more click here

 

 

WINE FUND RAI$ER

 

Jim Calcei distributed some of the bottles of 2010 Amadeus Shiraz at Monday's meeting. 

Please remember to pay Jim at the next meeting and if you will be collecting your order then, bring along some cash.

 

Let your friends sample this fine wine and see if they would like to place an order.

The more we sell the greater the profits!

 

 

 

Rotary Club of Attadale - Thirty Years of History DVD

 

Mal Bennett reports that work is being undertaken to improve the quality of the written reports in the Club history.  Members will be notified when this is complete and the new copies are ready for distribution.

 

Mal has passed all of the original photographs borrowed and used for the history to Nancy Bray and Joan Henley.  Members who are yet to receive their photos back should contact Nancy or Joan.
